THE HUB's "URBAN WEEKLY" e-magazine returns as we were on hiatus due to our presence required at the Black Women's Networking Brunch which was "EXCEPTIONAL".  If you weren't there you missed the experience of 400-500 powerful and dynamic Black women everywhere in the building at the Hilton Hotel-Sacramento Arden West and we also had some handsome Black men who were escorts for our Honorees who attended as well.  Be sure to pick up the October/November 2008 issue of The Hub Magazine on news stands the 2nd week of October which will include photos and highlights of the networking brunch and pictures will be posted in the photo gallery on Sacculturalhub.com.
